return to the city he devastated. >> if he goes back to cleveland, this is him saying, hey, i care about my image long-term. i want to win in cleveland. basically my hometown. and winning four mvps and two titles with the heat is simply not enough. >> reporter: and judging from earlier reaction, there is forgiveness in basketball. >> cleveland would be more than happy to bring him back. >> i'm from akron. i'm on board for james. >> if you're winning, you're welcome. >> so why should they welcome him? those two championships, the four mvps. the sweep stakes are far from over. he's going to be a miami this week to hear their pitch. you're skeptical. >> i was going to say pat riley will have the final word in this conversation. usually does. but i think you're right in terms of cleveland, the last sound bite you had. if he comes back and wins, he'll be a god. they'll build statues to him in cleveland. >> no primetime special this time? >> no. no decision.

the obama administration addressing the flood of undocumented immigrants in this country. he will ask congress for $2 billion in emergency spending to add you judges, detention facilities and cover other costs. a historic day in washington. retail marijuana stores open for business. we told you monday on "today", only a handful would begin operating at first, including just one in seattle. and the ninja roller coasters at six flags magic mountain is closed today. it hit a fallen tree branch. several people were injured. it took rescue workers three hours to get all the passengers off that ride. and coming up, embarrassing but does it warrant a lawsuit. why this guy caught on camera falling asleep at a baseball game is now suing the league, espn, and the new york yankees. >> we'll find out more about that lawsuit in a moment. let's begin this half hour with the defense resting at the oscar
pistorius murder case. the latest phase of the end of the story of the trial being all over the world. jeff, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, savannah. good morning to you. what a take. only four months or so to get here. what's important is we're here. the prosecution has rested. today, moments ago, the defense rested too. all the evidence in. all the witnesses heard. so the big question now, did oscar pistorius and his defense team do enough to keep him out of jail for life? feeling the enormity of the moment oscar pistorius clenched his jaw in court, as his defense lawyer made the big announcement. >> we close the case for the defense. >> reporter: testimony is now officially over. and believe it or not, team pistorius is already laying the groundwork for a possible appeal, saying the tv cameras affected their defense. >> we were unable to call a number of witnesses who simply refused to testify because they
say they don't want -- they are protected against television but they don't want their voices all over the world. >>reporter: so many witnesses over so many months trying to piece together what happened inside pistorius's bathroom, when he shot and killed his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp. pistorius said it was an accident. thought she was an intruder. and it is his own testimony that could decide his case. >> my lady, i didn't have time to think. i did not fire at reva. >>reporter: so testimony is over. who do you think has the upper hand in the end? >> i still think the state. their witnesses were more credible than the defense witnesses. as you said before, it is always going to come down to oscar's testimony. he changed his version. he got agitated with the prosecutor. he broke down numerous times. so, no, not a good witness at all.
>> reporter: here's what's next, his defense lawyer and the prosecutor will prepare closing arguments. then it's verdict watch. the judge and two assessors will deliberate. who decides? it needs to be a 2/3 vote so the assessors can overrule the judge. pistorius is charged with premeditated murder. possible sentence, life in prison. but the judge can also find him guilty of two lesser charges. murder, which means he didn't plan ahead of time. possible sentence, 15 years in prison. or culpable homicide. pistorius was acting in self-defense but was negligent. possible sentence, also 15 years in prison. he is facing several firearms charges which could set him behind bars. we just learned oscar pistorius will have to wait even longer to hear his fate. lawyers say they need more time to prepare their closing arguments. and the judge, she's giving it to them. closing arguments now scheduled
for next month, august 7th. we'll be right back here for you. >> all right. jeff rosen, thank you so much. lisa, good morning. how about it, do you think the defense raised enough doubt as to whether oscar pistorius intentionally killed reeva steenkamp? >> reporter: not so much, savannah. what they did is eat around the case. trying to show he was anxious, fearful. but that was really undercut by the preparation getting that ph month-long gap of getting the mental exam, which showed there was no incompetence. >> it showed his mobility even when he does not have his prosthetics on. do you think it will have any affect on what happens here? >> it certainly could. the judge and the assessors are human beings. they saw it. it tends to undercut his defense that he is so vulnerable. he was so nearful.
here we see him being the olympic athlete that he is, very nimble, very much able to get around. ale to walk back and hold a gun in his hand even without prosthetics. >> they had no choice. they had to put oscar pistorius on the stand. did it help at all? did that testimony help? >> no. i would give a d minus for that testimony. the worst thing, he went from changing his theory. from punitive self-defense, i thought i was protecting against an intruder to a mental detect defense, i didn't know what i was doing. >> quickly, where do you think the prosecution's case is weakest? >> the prosecution never had a smoking gun in this case. their theory is there was a fight that night between oscar pistorius and reeva steenkamp. they don't have strong evidence against that. the best evidence is what they started out with four months
ago. neighbors who said they heard a woman screaming before those gunshots went off. also the fact that reeva was fully dressed in street clothes, the bathroom door was locked and a cell phone. doesn't sound like someone just using the restroom in the middle of the night. >> lisa, we will see what the judge thinks in this case. thank you. >> thank you. it is hot, feeling like summer in parts of the country. east coast, west coast. the temperatures could be close to record highs today. we have this area of high pressure over the atlantic. not only is it hot, but it's humid too. a little cool through the great lakes. out west, interior parts of the southwest will see temperatures well into the 90s. we are looking at this upper level ridge which will keep the temperatures on the warmer side. let's take a look at some of the numbers. 95 in reno. medford, oregon, should be 9 # today. on the east coast, with that feels-like temperature. you factor in the humidity, should feel like 97 in new york

is in this. it doesn't seem very keri russell. >> it's the director of this. he called me and i love him so much. i think what's special and works about this movie in particular is matt is so good at creating these emotional pieces and very kind of intimate portrayals. i think if i have a line about what matt does, he's constantly making stories about people trying to be brave. and so you have that what matt does so well partnered with this giant, beautiful, epic summer movie with amazing 3d stuff. and he succeeded in creating a big summer movie with those specific little stories and emotional connections. >> it's true. it's a gorgeous movie. there's plenty of fights if that's your thing. but plenty of story here too. the apes are realistic.
they are not real apes. i understand you were acting across guys in unitards. >> there were a lot of grown man in unitards in the forest. i'd never done anything like this before. but those who created gollum, our main character. it's incredible what they do. but luckily andy is such an incredible actor that you're really just doing is scene with this incredible actor talking about missing -- not knowing where their family is or -- so it wasn't as hard as it seemed. after the first five minutes of going yes, you're in a unitard. we're not at the gym. i'm in normal clothes. you get past it. and it's really remarkable what the guys who do all those movies are doing in this. >> you shot on location. beautiful scenery. but you were kind of in the middle of the nowhere. i heard you were roughing it. no cell phone service. >> no. and people don't like that these
days. >> no. would have been, like, freaking out. >> that's always a good idea for a half a minute to not have a phone. and we were in these beautiful forests. you know, i was around all boys. i was the only girl. so they were talking about, i don't know, race cars and whatever they were talking about and i would have my little books and find some mossy little perch and read my nerdy books for awhile. but it was gorgeous to be there. you know, it was a really great thing. and especially to work with my friend matt again. >> i love seeing you in "the americans." you get all these great costumes. i loved hearing what you said about the first time you saw yourself on set at "dawn of the planet of the apes." >> "the americans" is all about cat eyes and way too tight jeans and high heels. and then in the woods no makeup, frizzy hair, about 18 sweatshirts on. old, dirty. i was like this is not what i
look like. wait, someone -- i can't do a movie like this. i was like, where is the eye liner? where are those tight jeans? but you get used to it. >> well, you looked great. it's a great film. i think it's getting great reviews. going to be a big summer blockbuster. >> i hope so. >> see you around the co-op. coming up next, hats are hot again. we'll meet the woman helping make that craze again. but first this is "today" on nbc.

from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist, and tamron hall. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. it is july the 8th, 2014. i'm willie geist with tamron hall. natalie is making her way to alaska. al is off. we're going to check in with natalie later if the week. are you a roller coaster fan? >> i used to be in my younger days. i think i rode the hulk at universal in 2000. that's the last one. >> up at the top and spins you at the same time. this is a scary moment.
two dozen people were left trapped dangling after a tree branch fell on the tracks. the ride came around a corner and crashed into a tree. some people were stuck there for almost three hours. three passengers were take ton the hospital with just minor injuries. there's a youtube video that shows the usual view from the roller coaster. i guess as they made one of these turns, hit one of the branches that had fallen. six flags statement saying, the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority and as a precaution the ride will remain closed until a thorough inspection of the area is complete. these things are usually safe. you have the rare accident. >> the ride is not malfunction. a tree fell down. >> there was a tree in their path. they basically crashed into a tree at a very high speed. it's amazing it stayed on the track. i mean, that's scary to be dangling for three hours. but thank goodness the injuries weren't too serious. >> nothing could prepare me for
that. >> you're done with roller coasters for good now. >> i was done in 2000, but really now. so this one has caught our attention. some people are calling this guy is snore loser. that's the headline from one of the papers in new york. have awe fallen asleep at a movie or concert or sport event? i do it at movies. but one yankees fan was caught on tv napping at the game. now he's filed a lawsuit against the yankees, major league baseball, espn, and its broadcasting crew for what he calls defamation. he guy's name is andrew rector. he wants $10 million because of this. >> did he sleep through the beltran homer? 45,000 people stand up and cheer and he sleeps through it? >> you'd think it'd be tough to, but he seemed comfortable. >> what's the deal with this guy? >> maybe that's his buddy and he likes him a lot better when he's asleep.
>> i think the other guy's more concerned with the food and the game. >> they're a special item at the ballpark. why share? get them when he's asleep. >> we'll have to see how long this guy's out for. >> the video was posted to mlb. i like the announcers talking about the guy with the nachos. he doesn't care. according to the lawsuit, they called those hurtful comments like the plaintiff is a fatty cow that need two seats at all time and represent symbol of failure. well, the announcers never used those words. he's saying this is what people said after the video was posted and he became a viral video moment. we reached out to the parties involved, nobody had a comment. but it did remind us of one of willie's favorite episodes of "seinfeld." >> come on. >> so this is george costanza getting caught eating a banana split at the u.s. -- i don't
know if he was eating it or wearing it. disgusting. >> there's so much there. the flip-up shades, the chocolate. >> it's like being at the games like when they do the kiss cam and you're there. you know when you walk in if you're, like, picking your nose or something, you could be on tv. >> they'll catch you. and i think the problem with this lawsuit is -- >> the misspelled words? >> there's a lot of those. your attorney needs spell check. that's one thing. >> that's autocorrect that did him in. i know the feeling. >> can't blame autocorrect for some of those. >> darn it. >> if you listen to the broadcasts, what the announcer said was innocuous. it was harmless. but he was saying because he was pointed out at the game, he got this heat. it's a long way to go for 10 million bucks. >> not to make this a gender war, but i don't think women fall asleep like that in public. men, i think men -- dylan's like i did it. she just fell asleep and woke up all of a sudden. i've never seen women do that at
a game or at a movie. i was on an airplane recently. the guy was next to me. he was snoring. and i did this. i go, that's for your wife. >> did you? >> yes. come on. you never see women do it. >> it's a war on men right here. >> except dylan. >> i'm sleeping with the best of them. >> we were talking earlier because of our schedules if we go to movies, you get me into a dark, cool room and the lights go down and there's a hum to the movie, i'll go out. now they have the theaters with the seats that go back. >> i'll just do a meditating -- my dad called it resting my eyes. but guys are all -- >> we go all in. if we're sleeping, we're sleeping. wherever we are. >> i don't care where you are. i love that. >> this piece of videotape is incredible in australia. a crocodile caught on tape -- ends well. don't worry. animal trainer trent burton was feeding a crocodile. he goes in and a croc clamps
down on his hand and drags him down by the water. that's where it gets scary. those things will take you under. he was using a piece of meat to lure the crocodile. he was treated for hand injuries, received stitches. expected to be okay. which i don't understand how he got away that easily. kept his fingers. the zoo's owner says the trainer wanted people to know the attack was not the crocodile's fault. >> you were with crocs in orlando. >> yeah. gators and crocs. went to gatorland. natalie and i were holding baby ones. there was a feeding area. he said we're going to feed the crocodiles. and they're right there. we're going to close the gate behind us. i said, we? who are you talking about? we threw chicken and it would twist and take them down under. it was horrifying. i mean, i was brave. i had no problem with it. >> willie, this is the story
willie tells. the only picture i saw was a baby croc. like that's what happened? >> you get that close to one of those guys, you get chills. >> i have no desire to do that. a couple in florida, they need our help. meaning us and you at home. we have to pull in together as a united team, united states of a team to make this happen for this florida couple. so this fellow is planning to propose to his lovely girlfriend and he purchased a bling bling of a ring. $6,000 he paid for this ring. so cory todd decided it was a good idea to hide the ring in the pocket pants of a pair of pants in their guest room closet. you don't want her to find it. you want it to be a surprise. but when he went to check for the ring last month, the pants were gone. pants left the building. he later learned that his girlfriend jace lynn had donated those pants to goodwill a week earlier. >> no. >> yes, willie. >> that hurts.
>> you can imagine after spending $6,000 on a ring and cory gets the news the pants are gone, just give it up. >> my gosh. >> they went to goodwill like hair on fire. goodwill says they cannot find the pants on the rack. pants are gone. ring's gone. the couple still not engaged until cory gets that ring, she's not going to say yes. i ad-libbed that. >> i feel for cory. >> you did that? >> when you buy the ring, you have the lag time where you have it in your possession to the time you propose. it's all you think about. you go and check on it. >> where did you high it? >> up on a high shelf. >> you're tall. >> exactly. she wasn't getting it. then you keep your hand on the box in your pongt the whole time, give it away. hopefully it'll turn up. >> someone's got the pants.
they probably haven't worn them yet. probably haven't gone in the pocket. when they do, they're going to find the ring and we're going to celebrate. >> it's in florida. start looking in florida. >> it's a big state. >> we need to find out what part of florida so we can do a map. we're rooting for you, cory. you sound like a great guy. >> we're going to find it. don't you worry. end with a piece of video here. turtles not known for their ball handling skills. oh, oh. so a turtle and a dog playing a little ball here? >> okay. go? >> was posted a few years ago, picked up steam this week. oh, that's a goal for the dog. play some defense, turtle! >> come on. >> the turtle is very slow foot. >> that turtle has no game. >> he's hanging in, though. it's 2-0 already. this is out of hand. >> come on.
block him. oh, that dog. >> that's a blowout. >> always comes back to you and shaq when you play basketball. in this scenario, shaq is the turtle and willie is the dog. >> here come this turtle making a play. >> come on, turtle. go turtle. you can do it. >> take some time off the clock and score late. that's his strategy. >> look at the dog tries to distract him. >> that's not even close. all right. let's get a check of the weather from dylan. >> totally different story if the dog goes for the turtle instead of the ball. >> the turtle was lucky the dog was distracted by the ball. >> very much so. we have strong storms moving through parts of the midwest. further east than yesterday. now more across the great lakes. yesterday we had 278 reports of 58 mile-per-hour or higher wind gusts. also 91 reports of hail larger
than a quarter. so we saw some pretty strong storms yesterday. today that threat spreads east from little rock, arkansas, right into upstate new york and western new england. that's where we could see stronger storms especially in through western pennsylvania and western new york. wouldn't be surprised if an isolated tornado pops out. just because the setup is right for that. we do have flooding across the mississippi. the flood stage is at 19.5 feet. you can see it is going to take all week long by the time into tuesday before it even comes close to minor flooding. 9:11. happy tuesday to you. temperatures outside, mostly in the 50s and 60s, although they feel more like the 70s in places like livermore and concord, we're really increasing that humidity at this hour. we've got a feels-like temperature to consider for today. what you'll notice is some tropical moisture will continue to increase as we head throughout the day today, and
although temperatures will drop off, it's going to feel about as warm as yesterday. 83 for the south bay, 75 for the east shore. the one cool spot, san francisco. >> and that's your latest forecast. >> thank you very much. i'm getting a lot of tweets from other women like you that fall asleep anywhere. >> i can fall asleep, mouth open, not pretty. yeah. all right. ming up next, really cool new film shot over the course of 12 years using the same actors. it's called "boyhood" and it stars patricia arquette.

anything you've seen. shot over the course of 12 years. it follows the life of a boy named mason who literally grows up before our eyes. patricia plays the mother. it's good to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> let's explain the premise of how this works. it was filmed when he was six or seven years old, he began filming as this boy. over 12 years you would get together for a week every summer. what a unique process. >> it was an incredible experience. it was so fun to work together. when rick first called me about it, when he told me i was like i want to do it. he said we don't have any money. i was like, i want to do it. i said yeah i guess i should read the script. he said, i don't have a script. he told me the main changes and then -- >> was that because you trusted him so much as a director that you would just go along with it? >> i was a big fan of his already. i loved the premise and what he did tell me about the changes.
